Activities and Events

As well as courses, U3A offers a range of activities and other events. Most of these are available only to members, although the Lunchtime Forums and Other activities are open to anyone.

Lunchtime forums

A listing of U3A/COTA BYO forums held on Tuesdays from May to November, 12:30-1:45 pm at the Main Hall, Hughes Community Centre. Entrance fee $2. Free tea and coffee provided. You need to bring your own cup. There is a hearing loop in the hall — people with hearing aids should adjust them to the 'T' position.

Forums are open to the public. No booking required, but seating is on a first come basis.

Other activities

U3A is approached by promoters of various events who believe that they may be of interest to our members. Some of these will be advertised on our website
Since these are not U3A events, they are open to non-members as well as members. Click on the link above to see what we are currently listing.

Cinema screenings

U3A members can attend a weekly series of classic films from the NFSA collection by enrolling in the course Classics of the Cinema. Examples of films that have been shown in the past include

Rancho Notorious (1952)
Proof (1991)
The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)
The Wizard of Oz (1935)
Mr Hulot's Holiday (1952)

Non-members interested in attending these screenings will need to join U3A ACT

Outings and walks

U3A members are able to participate in a range of National Trust (ACT) activities, including talks, walks and day bus tours to sites of historic/heritage interest.

If you are interested in taking part in any of these walks or outings, you should join U3A ACT or the National Trust (ACT) to get special prices for members for many of these activities.

Travel opportunities

The National Trust (ACT) also runs a variety of longer tours focusing on history and heritage in regions of interest to members.

These trips are offered to U3A (ACT) and National Trust (ACT) members at special prices, so if you are interested in taking part, you should join U3A ACT or the National Trust (ACT).
